I, # # # # # # # # [3] make this free and voluntary statement to # # # # # # [4] whom I know to be a Representative of the United States Naval Criminal Investigative Service. I make this statement of my own free will and without any threats made to me or promises extended.

# # [6]am currently serving as a detainee escort at the Guantanamo Bay Joint Task Force Detainee facility, aboard Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (GTMO). I have served at this position since November 2005. On 10JUN06, at approximately 0015, I was located in the escort lounge on standby when we received a# # # # # # # # # # [7] call. For informational purposes, # # # # # # # # # # [7] indicates a medical emergency regarding the detainee population. Initially, my team, # # # # [7] did not respond to the first # # # # # # # # # # [7] Another escort team responded to the call. We then received a second and separat# # # # # # # # # # [7] to which another team responded to the code. Shortly after receiving the second # # # # # # # # # # [7] a guard From Camp One (1) ran into the escort area where my team and I were located and requested all personnel present to accompany him to Alpha Block. When we arrived, we stopped at the ISN# # [8]3's cell. ISN-693 had already been placed and strapped on a medical backboard. I noticed ISN-693's face was blue. I observed one of ISN-693's arms had fallen off the backboard. I returned his arm onto the backboard and noticed his arm was stiff. # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # [3]# # # # # # [9] and I lifted the backboard and transported ISN-693 to the Detainee Clinic. When we arrived at the Detainee Clinic, the medical staff directed us to take ISN-693 to the last room on the left. We placed his body on the bed and shackled one arm the backboard per standard procedures. One of the people who helped transport ISN-693 informed the medical staff that no pulse could be detected. # # # # # # # # # # [7] on duty initiated CPR. # # # # # # [10] was providing artificial respiration. A medical corpsman on duty began performing chest compressions. They continued providing CPR to ISN-693 for approximately 45 minutes. A medical doctor on staff, wearing civilian clothes, entered the room and began to attempt to intubate ISN-693. The doctor, however, could not open ISN-693's mouth with his hands. The doctor was able to open ISN-693's mouth slightly by prying the jaws apart with a specialized tool. It was at this point the doctor stated ISN-693 had something stuck in the back of his mouth.# # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # [7]. The
